The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

Many applications to work do require more than 8 GB, video editing being the most popular one. If you were to record your gaming to upload in youtube, 16 GB or more help a lot when working with high definition videos.

Why would you buy RAM like that? It doesn't even increase performance in any kind of significant manner. Go look up some benchmarks. The highest speed ram is slightly over $10 a GB on Newegg. Anything other than the actual numbers just means you're buying brand recognition which is stupid.

While it HELPS, it's still not a requirement.

I tested rendering a large video file with both 8 and 16 gigs of RAM. Got a 30% speed increase with 16 gigs, which is nice, but 8 gigs did the job fine too, it just took a few minutes longer.

LOL at gaming RAM. You do realize that "Gaming RAM" is a marketing term right? There's no such thing.If you want to fall for that crap and waste your money by all means do so.
